Product: Solaris 10 Operating System OpenSolaris

A security vulnerability in Solaris 10 related to the sendfilev() system call may allow a user who has the ability to create pages that are hosted on a Solaris 10 system using Apache 2.2.x to create a carefully crafted web page which could cause a system panic resulting in a Denial of Service (DoS) condition.
In addition, it may be possible for a local unprivileged user to be able to panic the system with a specially crafted program which calls the sendfile() system call (using either the sendfilev(3EXT) library routine or else directly).

Title: A Security Vulnerability in Solaris 10 involving the sendfilev() system call could result in Denial of Service (DoS) due to System Panic
Description: Unspecified vulnerability in Sun Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris before snv_96 allows (1) context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via vectors involving creation of a crafted file and use of the sendfilev system call, as demonstrated by a file served by an Apache 2.2.x web server with EnableSendFile configured; and (2) local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via a call to the sendfile system call, as reachable through the sendfilev library.
